It is winter again, and that time of the year, when you are locked inside of your home because of weather. This is the best time when you will be bored, and what do you do when you get bored, one of the most favorite things, currently for the mankind, start bingeing.

This is not a survey I am talking about; I was surprised currently, when I started bingeing. Being a woman, the kitchen automatically comes under my constant access, I found when the weather worsened my hand automatically went up to some crunchy or the other. Spicy, salty and oily these are irresistible, especially for a person whose work consists mainly sitting down in front of the computer.

Moreover, it started getting dark earlier, so my evening walk got automatically discouraged, making it impossible to burn calories, in addition to that, I was already bingeing which led to sudden spurt in weight. It is often that we visualize ourselves to look something different and end up looking different, it took me some time to notice I was not the same slim person I had always prided myself to be.

The realization came as a shock, and soon made me depressed, now according to me I was looking horrible, I have some problem comparing myself to others, for me others are always looking good and I am always horrible. This started the race for weight reduction.

The first phase of making a decision of ‘do not eat junk’ was a complete failure. I was still eating those. Next, I decided to take a more holistic view, I am eating those crunchies because they are available to me, so nip the problem in bud, I stopped buying crunchies altogether, the next visit to the mall did include the list for chips.

I found another way of inspiring myself, I found an old photograph, where I was looking good, I decided to plant this next to my computer, any urge to binge and I would take a look at the photograph. My bingeing lessened considerably. I remembered the happy days when I could skip with ease and I really wanted the same days to get back again.

Today, I have reduced three kilograms, in almost a month, slow but sure progress and with that a conditioning of mind as to what I really want to look like and what I should sincerely avoid. I also decided cooking burned calories, so I cook fresh eat fresh, whether it is significant whole meal or a nourishing single dish. I am lighter and mood is upbeat. I ensure that I go for a walk , just change and go is the motto. I enjoy walking. I enjoy life. , is my website, where i do affiliate marketing. My website is not very professional looking but since I am learning new things about being a webmaster, I hope to be a self taught webmaster soon.
